Think big picture. This is my personal motto, especially when at work. I’d like to put that mantra aside and instead look at the details. Let’s stay there for a moment and appreciate what details do to contribute to the overall story. In the above picture, far away it’s just another tree turning color in the Fall. Up close, I spotted what looked like a billy button (crespedia) flower.
Far away, this is just a dispenser for water at a party. Up close, the spout is a delicate piece of hardware and I like how the crystal glasses sparkle behind it.
Far away, this is just a nighstand. Up close, the candle was a wedding gift and the Eiffel Tower ornament was something I scored at a White Elephant party, one of the first parties I went to when I moved to DC, great memories all around.
Far away, this is just a door to a house. Up close, I you can see the lion guarding the opening to the house. I love his majestic look and his antique gold finish.
Far away, the bustle of a park and chirping of birds is just background noise. Up close, this bird was singing a very sweet song. It was a very distinct and long melody, I wonder who he was talking to?
